This tutorial shows how to convert VOB to iMovie compatible video format MP4 and transfer DVD VOB to iMovie.
Question: My wife has a burned DVD which contains one big VOB file, a couple of smaller VOBs, and some other files. She wants to import VOB into iMovie and selectively cut out about 5 minutes worth of video and paste the pieces together. If anyone can point toward a clear description of how to achieve this I'd certainly appreciate it.
Question2: I have a VOB movie file I want to import into imovie to do editing with. But it doesn't seem to work. It manages to create a new event under the Events section but there's nothing inside it and I'm told there's no matching video. Could someone help please?
